Certainty in Christ - Part 2: The Golden Chain

Certainty in Christ

This message finishes out the golden chain of salvation in Christ. It moves from all in Christ being foreknown and predestined, to all being called, justified, and glorified in Christ.

Certainty marks the purposes and promises of God. And all the promises of God find their “Yes” in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20). The Christian’s hope for glory is exclusively anchored here—in Christ. Here, Paul grounds and explains the golden guarantee (8:28) as a certainty in and for Christ (8:29-30). While these verses have been rightly recognized as the golden chain of salvation, they point to much more. Christ occupies the central position in this unbreakable sequence of divine links. The guaranteed certainty of glory is emphatically in and for Christ, which is purposed to induce and fortify both hope and holiness in us.
